Expert Grilling Advice from Beef. It's What's For dInner.

  • Consider your cut: While classics, such as Strip Steak and Ribeye, can be an easy go-to, there are endless options when it comes to cuts of beef. Why not try taking your grilling game up a notch with a cut you might not be as familiar with, like a juicy Flat Iron or a lean, flavorful Flank Steak. More cut ideas for grilling can be found here.
  • Elevate those flavors: Marinades and rubs are a great way to take beef to the next level with minimal effort. To add extra flavor, tender cuts can be marinated for as little as 15 minutes or as long as two hours. For less tender cuts, marinating for at least six hours, but not more than 24 hours, will do the trick.
  • Medium and steady wins the race: When it comes to cooking beef, there is no need to rush the process by using any higher heat than medium. Cooking at a medium heat allows beef to achieve caramelization while still developing rich flavors and avoiding charring.
  • Temperature is king To have the best eating experience, it is important to cook beef to the correct internal temperature. The best way to ensure accurate results is to use a meat thermometer.
  • Let it Rest: Always let beef rest for about 5 minutes after it comes off the grill to lock in all those tasty juices.
  • Time to savor: Once you’ve finished grilling that delicious beef meal, it’s time to sit back and enjoy.

Wyoming Ranch works to improve the local environment by starting from the ground up

The Cundall Ranch in Glendo, Wyoming has been with the Cundall family for over 100 years and is currently owned by Larry Cundall and his wife Ruthie. Growing up on the ranch has given Larry a lifetime of experience and he has become an expert at monitoring the range to help it keep improving. Every decision made on the ranch is intended to better the cattle, grass and soil. The Cundall family believes that the most important thing is the quality of the soil which leads to stronger grass and happier animals. To help improve the  soil and grass, the Cundall Ranch put in 18 different solar pumps and over 9 miles of water lines to water the grass and also to provide cattle access to water. By providing water to these areas that don't have natural water sources, the ranch can utilize rotational grazing patterns to keep the land strong and thriving. The Cundalls have also made sure their cattle are best suited for the land by using genetic selection. In doing so, they have reduced the size of their animals to better fit the resources available and not overburden the land. For their work in conservation, the Cundall Ranch was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"Sustainability for me is pretty natural. It means you leave the ground better than you found it, and you leave the community better than you found it." - Larry Cundall, Owner, Cundall Ranch
